Deja Voodoo-Too Cool to Live, Too Smart to Die,MLP,1985,Canada

Something unusual for this blog this one. Deja Voodoo was a Canadian duo(guitar,drums,vocals),combining 50s b-movie horror imagery with rockabilly primitivism.The result is an ultra primitive rockabily,reminding amaturish Cramps sound meeting Captain Beefheart (Trout Mask Replica era)primitive sound and undergound doo wop singers of the 50s.In my opinion very original and unique.

Thank you for posting this one. Heard some of the songs ages ago on Andrea 'Enthal's show and I thought I would never hear them again. Great, true lo-fi skuzz.

the best band ever. i have all their records on vinyl. saw them live a few times. absolutely perfect. their moto was "skinny strings are for whimps". drums with no cymbals and no skinny strings on the guitar

Definitely awesome. Those records never left my collection - wish I could find my box of old vhs tapes - I remember having tapes some old Deja Voodo videos from the DV BBQ days.

thanks a lot for this one! "cheese and crackers" and "bo diddley's cat" are among my all time favourites ever since I bought that record very many years ago. the web is a very nice place - I don't even have to rip the records I own :-)

Thanks soooo much! My vinyl copy of this got destroyed and I've been missing this for a long time. I must have gone to a half dozen BBQ's.

Thanks again!
